Woman accused of assault,
menacing with vehicle
A Grand Junction woman was arrested earlier this week on suspicion that she threatened to run over two strangers with her vehicle and assaulting one of them.
LaBrenda Walters-Jackson, 47, 882 21 1/2 Road, faces possible charges of menacing with a deadly weapon, third-degree assault on an at-risk adult, third-degree assault, criminal mischief and obstructing a peace officer.
According to an arrest affidavit, Walters-Jackson yelled at and tried to run down a 67-year-old man walking to his truck parked at Community Hospital on Tuesday. At one point, she got out of her truck, ordered the man to get down on his knees, hit him in the face and broke a side mirror on the truck, the affidavit said.
Two hours later, an employee at the Greyhound bus station told police that Walters-Jackson aimed her vehicle at the employee after the employee told her to move her vehicle out of the bus station parking lot, the affidavit said.
Officers had to pull Walters-Jackson, who attempted to kick one of them, out of her vehicle and arrest her, the affidavit said.
